  1. PDA-Based Portable Data Collection System for Commercial Vehicle Inspection

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 02FM1

    More than 1,300,000 Level 1 commercial vehicle inspections - a safety-critical, time-consuming, often difficult and painstaking process, especially as regards the brake inspection component -- are performed every year in the United States, under all sorts of weather and lighting conditions. The current technology used adds to the complexity and error potential inherent in this important task. In ...

  2. Compact Laser Shearography System for Crack Detection

    SBC: Laser Technology Inc.            Topic: 05FH1

    Laser Technology Inc. (LTI) proposes a Phase II SBIR research project to further develop a Compact Shearography System, Analysis Method and Software for micro-crack detection in concrete. There is an urgent need to detect and characterize fine cracks in concrete that form because of various damage mechanisms including alkali-silicate reaction, delayed ettringite formation or frost damage. Fine s ...

  3. Low Cost Transverse Rail Defect Detector

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: 02FR1

    Development of the basic EMAT based transverse rail defect detector has progressed toward finished form, as envisioned in the original solicitation. This modification is intended to produce a demonstratable version of a 2-rail detection system with automated signal interpertation. The objectives of this work are to: a. Further develop the system into a functioning 2-rail detection system, as ori ...

  4. Dewatering Membrane for Hazy Hydrodesulfurization Unit Effluents

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 09

    Many refinery product streams, particularly those from Ultra Low Hydrodesulfurisation units, are prone to haze due to water emulsions. Haze is also problematic for biodiesel production, as hazy fuel cannot be used until the haze settles or is removed, which creates costly scheduling and shipping delays. This project will develop a novel membrane process for the removal of dissolved and dispersed ...

  5. A Novel Oxygen Separation Membrane for Oxygen Production

    SBC: Enogetek, Inc.            Topic: 23

    The production of oxygen is ranked among the top five commodity chemicals in the U.S. However, low energy efficiencies and high costs are preventing the widespread implementation of traditional oxygen separation technologies. This project will develop and demonstrate a novel, low-cost, high-flux, high-selectivity, highly-efficient oxygen separation membrane. The Phase I effort demonstrated that ...

  6. Nano-Scale High-Surface-Area Thermal and Conductive Ceramics as Effectice Support for Metal Oxide Catalysts in Alkane Selective Oxidation

    SBC: Evernu Technology, Llc            Topic: 07

    Compared with conventional processes used to produce many oxygenated chemicals, processes based on the selective catalytic oxidation of alkanes to produce oxygenates could yield enormous economic, energy, and environmental benefits. However, commercial development of such processes has been hindered, in part, because the excessive heat released by alkane oxidation causes over-oxidation (burning) ...

  7. Advanced Sealing Technology for Hydrogen Compressors

    SBC: MOHAWK INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: 03

    In support of the hydrogen economy, the DOE seeks to develop delivery technologies for hydrogen as an energy carrier for transportation and stationary power. However, the 2003 DOE Strategic Initiatives for Hydrogen Delivery Workshop determined that existing hydrogen compressor designs cannot meet the need for a reliable, efficient, and cost-competitive transportation infrastructure. This project ...

  8. Graphite Foam Heat Exchanger Technology for Energy Recovery

    SBC: Thermal Centric Corporation            Topic: 11

    The recovery of heat currently wasted in exhaust gases can reduce fuel consumption in almost every commercial and industrial sector. In the electricity generation sector alone, even modest improvements in energy recovery effectiveness would result in billions of dollars in savings annually. New materials made from conductive graphite have created a significant opportunity to produce heat exchang ...

  9. Intensified Process for Biodiesel Production

    SBC: UNITED ENVIRONMENT & ENERGY, LLC            Topic: 07

    Although interest in biodiesel is rapidly increasing, the process by which biodiesel is synthesized has not changed much in the last two decades and is far from efficient. Currently, most biodiesel is made by a homogeneous-catalyst-based transesterification process, wherein soybean oil is reacted with methanol in the presence of sodium methoxide. After transesterification, the homogeneous alkali ...
